Professional Odor Eliminating Methods
The professional car washing & detailing industry uses several different methods as a final step to removing bad smells from vehicles. One method is an ozone deodorizing machine that can be left in the car for several hours – or overnight, if necessary. This device produces ozone gas that is comprised of unstable electrical molecules that are prompted to attach to other particles. When the unpleasant smelling particles of the odor adhere to the ozone molecules, the odor is neutralized. The other method is with a chemical device that generates similar results. A chemical system produces a chemical reaction that creates chlorine dioxide gas. This gas penetrates carpeting, plastics, and upholstery. The chlorine dioxide gas also has the advantage of disinfecting and sanitizing the entire vehicle in a lesser amount of time with excellent results. Unlike ozone, however, this method is not scent-free and does necessitate the car to be aired out afterward.
Note: While most air fresheners will mask or hide a smell, they do not treat the odor source.
